Gala Concert For The East End Friends of Acoustic Harvest and Winterfolk XIII in Toronto

 First round featured "Don't Bypass My Heart" and "Wind Of Change", sensitive song work by Lynn Harrison and Brian Gladstone, with overarching guitar adornments by longtime fret-wielders Noah Zacharin and Tony Quarrington. Tony also killed with an original take on Robert Johnson's classic, the suburban nightmare blues, "Hell Hound On My Lawn". Noah brought a wide variety of classic and original tunes, including Lester Brown, Red Red Bird, Ten Tons of Road, and All Go Blind.

 Above, the Kingston Village Outlaws, Noah, Brian and Tony, with singer Glen Hornblast standing by for moral support.

For the second round, two duets, one angelic (Clela Errington and Jocelyn Barth, above), and one outlaw (Fraser & Girard) parenthesized Meg Tennant, who seems to be able to go both ways. Clela offered harmonies to her left and right and Marianne Girard provided an emergency acoustic guitar for Meg's busted tuning peg disaster. By the grand finale (below) of "Will The Circle Be Unbroken", the answer to that eternal question was, more than obvious, manifest. A true communal experience with laughs, tears and lots of bright moments on a dark, dark Saturday night.

L. to R. Allan Fraser, Tony Quarrington, Marianne Girard, Meg Tennant, Clela Errington, Noah Zacharin, Brian Gladstone, Lynn Harrison and Joselyn Barth. More to come, by and by, at the 13th annual Winterfolk Festival
